Take The Lane, Not Share The Road

Here's a narrow lane that just begs for a sign advising motorists that bicyclists can take the full lane.

But instead, it's one of those pseudo share the road signs showing a bicyclist on the edge of the roadway.

Yeesh!

This is on Washington Street in Las Vegas.


R-J's Story On Mt Biking The Grand Canyon's North Rim

It was cool to see the Review-Journal run my story on mountain biking the North Rim of the Grand Canyon.

Let's Hit the Loop

When I bike on the Red Rock Canyon scenic loop, I'm thankful more people don't know about this place.

When I was visiting Las Vegas annually for the Interbike trade show, I never even knew red Rock Canyon existed.

It makes me wonder how many inspiring places and people I have not encountered because I am just not curious enough to explore.

Just as I was about to enter the scenic loop off, I met ultra marathon runner Molly Sheridan, who began running marathons at age 48 ten years ago and now runs a running event organizer business. I wrote a profile of Molly only two months ago for the Review-Journal.

Then, it off to the scenic loop. Enjoy your four-pack of photos.

Busy day on the Loop -- more bicyclists than cars.


 

Oh yes, highest [point right here at elevation 4,771 feet.

Red Rock By Mt Bike

Ended the day with a Red Rock Canyon mountain bike ride, offering views of the scenic loop.


Just Another Morning Bicycle Ride

Nothing like the zoom lens to show you how beautiful it is to bike Red Rock Canyon.

Closed To Cars But Open To Bicyclists -- An Unofficial Ciclovia




The Summerlin sprawl means that there will be roads that are built, but closed to cars during the house construction phase.

But the closed roads sure make great places to ride a bicycle.

As RJ star photographer Kevin Cannon finds out Saturday.

It's Hi 5 Time

Time for a Hi 5!

1. In Toronto, a property management company removes a bicycle from a pole on a public sidewalk. Reminds me of El Cortez banning people from locking bicycles on a public sidewalk in downtown Las Vegas.

2. Whoa nellie! Check out Copenhagen's elevated bicycle path.

3. This fella riding a bike in Ashland, Oregon was cited by police for riding in the traffic lane and not the bike lane.

4. Nice to hear that there's a bicycle crackdown in New York City. Maybe start with this NYPD officer standing in the middle of a bike lane in midtown.

5. When Interbike and the bicycle industry come to Vegas, there's a whole bunch of great bike events -- like the Las Vegas Pedal Palooza crits in downtown.
